First time eaten in The Mirrabelle - will in future stick to The Garden Restaurant.
The corridors from the bar to the restaurant were miserable and the décor in The Mirrabelle equally dull.
We had the set festive lunch and the starter was by far the best course. I had the lamb as a main which was just ok but the vegetables were served straight on the plate - cabbage, red pepper and dauphonoise potatoes with a stick of lavender poked into it (strange mix????)
The desserts were the worst course - 2 of my friends left theirs (caramel pineapple with black pepper ice cream which after swallowing burnt their throats) and the waiter just cleared the plates and didn't even ask why they were left.
Very disappointing after looking forward to the lunch on The Mirrabelles reputation.
